FAL Last modified / create date
It seems that create date and Last modified date in FAL is reversed (info and ref view.) Checked it in TYPO3 7/8/10.

This is a Linux specialty. Linux (at least the commonly used ext4 file system) doesn't store the actual creation date in a file's metadata in the file system, but the last inode change time, becoming the actual result of
filectime(). With renaming a file, the inode changes as well, thus the "creation date" gets updated in FAL storage as well.
I don't think there's much we can do here but not relying on the dates the file system reports to TYPO3, which requires major rewrites of FAL, AFAICS.
